Author: FSRH Clinical Effectiveness Unit

The CEU is updating two existing Clinical Guidelines - Combined Hormonal Contraception and Contraception for Women Aged 40 and Over. We are making a call for members on the Guideline Development Groups for the two updates. We would also like to invite FSRH members to feedback on the proposed scope of these Guidelines. Deadline for submission of interest and comments is 18th November 2016.

Call for members of the Guideline Development Group

We would like to hear from FSRH members who would like to be considered for involvement in the update of these Clinical Guidelines, as a member of the Guideline Development Group (GDG). The CEU team systematically reviews the professional literature relevant to each guideline topic and on that basis produces an initial draft guideline. It is the role of the GDG to review this draft in the light of the evidence presented. The GDG members use their expertise in the field to inform discussion within the group and to formulate the recommendations that the final guideline will make. The GDG members are required to attend a one day, face-to-face meeting at the Chalmers Centre in Edinburgh where the CEU is based – the meeting date is expected to be in mid February for the Contraception for Women Aged 40 and Over GDG meeting and late March for the Combined Hormonal Contraception GDG meeting. Expenses will be reimbursed.

If you are interested, please send us an email with your full contact details, FSRH membership number, the title of the Clinical Guideline you would like to be involved in as a GDG member and a very brief statement describing why you are interested and any relevant experience related to the topic of the guideline you wish to be involved in to The deadline for submission of interest is 18th November 2016.
